When I make spaghetti, I use a mix of spices that I add to my sauce, such as garlic powder, oregano, basil, crushed chilies, and sugar. I poured about one tablespoon full of each into a baggie and zip-locked it closed.

This is a dry mix that you put in an airtight container and store in a cool dry place. It might be a nice gift too, if you know someone who enjoys making spaghetti sauce from scratch.
This is a dry mix for spaghetti sauce that will keep up to a year and it makes a cup in total. Each batch uses 1/4 cup of this mix.
This recipe makes the equivalent of 8 packets of a similar mix that you can purchase at the store. Great for flavoring Spaghetti Sauce with Meat and for making Sloppy Joes.

As a Spatini user for over 30 years, I too was devastated by Spatini's demise. This week, at Weis Markets, I discovered that Lawry's is now marketing a "Spaghetti Sauce" mix in individual packets. Is it possible that this is Spatini repackaged and sold singly?
I have never tried Spatini or this recipe, but I did copy it from Top Secret Recipes when it was made free.

OMG - I was heartbroken when they quit making Spatini! My whole family tried to find it everywhere for me. Thank you for this recipe, I'm going to go home and try to make it this weekend and see how it tastes. I will let you know on Monday.

How is the Spatini protest going?

Editor's Note: Unilever does not seem interested in bringing back Spatini, despite it's popularity. For those of you who don't know about Spatini, here is a link to feedback about it and our online petition.
Sorry, I have no idea what spatini is.
What is spatini anyway? Never heard of it.
I was not a user of Spatini and in fact had no idea it even existed until I started seeing people post here to bring it back. In my search to find out more about it, I came across this recipe for it.
I have no idea if this is even close to anything - since I have no basis for comparison - but I thought I would pass it along.

Yesterday while shopping at an Acme supermarket, I noticed a packaged dinner by Kraft which was a spaghetti dinner & contained a packet of dry seasoning. I didn't buy it because my husband is on a sodium restricted diet, but I have to wonder if the seasoning packet is anything like the old spatini. Has anyone tried this product?
Does anyone have a recipe for making spaghetti sauce mix, i.e. Spatini? Thanks.
Editor's Note: We have had so many people commiserating about Spatini and not being able to get through to the Lowry's complaint line.
ThriftyFun has set up an online petition. Please take a minute to sign it if you haven't already!
Amazon has it. 15 oz bag for about 10 dollars. Just have to do the math to make a normal sized batch of sauce...
